From what I can tell, these stones were found and painted whilst Schwitters was living in the Lake District town of Ambleside, Cumbria. I particularly like the technique used on the first stone; the splashes of colour and changes in brushstroke direction accentuate the planes of the object’s surface.

STUDIO SALE - NOW THRU 9/7/15

Ok I’m not supposed to do this on facebook right now for job reasons (…) so I’ll start here. As a lot of you know I live in a microscopic space and that’s usually not a problem but I have so much unsold art piling up and it’s becoming a hindrance in terms of creating new work. To help clear out and also give me funds for more supplies (and living in general) I’m going to offer these for drastically reduced prices. 

I am DEFINITELY open to offers so don’t be afraid to ask!! Chances are if it at least covers material I will say yes! If I receive payment by Monday night I will ship all pieces on Tuesday morning via USPS (or whichever carrier you want me to use)

Any interest or questions either pm me on here or for more reliable contact email me at zarah825@gmail.com

Stunning Abstract Expressionist Paintings by Fabio Deronzier

Born into a family of artists, 18-year old Parisian artist Fabio Deronzier’s abstract expressionist paintings posses traditional elements in a contemporary world. Influenced by romantic painters, such as Caspar David Friedrich and J. M. W. Turner, Deronzier’s work behaves as an extension of the romantic ideal of nature. Abstract in nature, Deronzier’s pieces contain a moody, atmospheric, and melancholic tone, which demands attention. The brushstrokes convey chaos and turmoil, which seem purposefully crafted in order to move even the untrained eye.

What are the major themes you pursue in your work?
I have always struggled with a constant critique and defense of the territory of home. What is it about home that gives one a sense of camaraderie? My work is based at an internal examination of personal experiences that reflect upon a provincial upbringing.
